RAF Voyager

Feature on the new Royal Air Force Voyager tanker transports in the forthcoming December issue of CAM.

With the RAF having completely retired the VC10 and Tristar, it has now taken delivery of nine of its planned 14 A330 Voyagers. In service with Nos 10 and 101 Squadrons at RAF Brize Norton, the aircraft achieved air-to-air refueling (AAR) in service milestones earlier this year, having also received a Release To Service (RTS) to refuel the two RAF fast jet types: the Tornado GR4 in May 2013 and similarly in August 2013. Full story in the December issue.
